Clothing which helps mum and dad to dress their new bundle with ease makes a great gift. Sleepsuits are the ideal choice - the front poppers ensure that they are easy to put on and fasten for a secure fit. This handy pack of three from John Lewis won’t disappoint. The organic cotton material guarantees comfort for the baby whilst the cute prints and range of colours provide a lovely finish.

A new toy for baby which keeps them entertained throughout the day is a great investment. The Lily Lamb Jiggler from Early Learning Centre will provide some animated fun – little ones can pull Lily Lamb down and watch her as she jiggles back up the cord. It’s a great way to keep babies stimulated and improve hand eye coordination, making this toy fun and functional at the same time. Parents can attach it to their pram or cot using the textured clip so little ones can keep their new friend with them all day.
